Philly Mural Love Pt. 1

Happy Monday all!

When I first came to Philadelphia back in 1994, it was my first time living outside of New York.  Philadelphia was so foreign to me because all I knew was NYC.   During my first semester of graduate school, I was so homesick I barely left the confines of Penn’s campus.  Eventually my homesickness faded and I began to move around the city. While exploring Philadelphia, I noticed gorgeous murals in different parts of the city.  They were larger than life works of art that breathed life to spaces that were often blighted and grim. These world renown murals are free and accessible to everyone (which art should be). Some contain social messages that speak to challenges the communities they inhabit face. Others convey messages of hope and love which the idea of Philadelphia is based on.  As the years have progressed, the murals have become woven into the Philadelphia experience.  Just ask any Philadelphian which mural is their  favorite and they will tell you.

To help celebrate  Mural Arts Month I’ll be highlighting some of my favorite murals from around the city.  I hope they bring you as much joy as they have given me.

Have a wonderful day!

    Excellent! I love how your outfit goes with the mural. I didn’t know it was mural month and have wanted to showcase on my blog the murals here in Detroit. I’ll have to do that this month I guess!
